1. Appearance Design

The two TVs are almost indistinguishable in terms of design, both with a flat design and a minimalist look suitable for all kinds of home environments, and the Direct Full Array backlight makes the sides of the TV look not too thick. The wider base allows the TV to be placed firmly on a flat surface.

2. Picture and Sound

Both TVs are Samsung's 4K QLED TVs with Quantum Processor with 4K Upscaling making the picture clear and details visible. Samsung Q80B supports HDR 10+ and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG), while the Q80A only supports HDR 10+.

The biggest advantage of Samsung's QLED technology is its ability to display 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut in any environment.(QD-OLED vs. LCD vs. OLED vs QLED)

Samsung's Object Tracking Sound tracks the movement of objects based on motion to output 3D sound, and the speakers on the back of the TV provide Dolby Atmos sound.

3. Configuration

The Samsung Q80B also features upgraded interfaces. The Samsung Q80A offers four HMDI 2.0 ports, while the Q80B offers four HMDI 2.1 ports, which is important for gamers. (The importance of HDMI 2.1 for TVs)

4K 120Hz makes both games and movies smoother and clearer with less lag.
